LAPS on SADS
  • Use standalone IGC_Process to create images
  • Animated GIF shows multiple parameters
  • Capability for user-defined images
  • Clearly delineate areas of interest
  • Not absolutely necessary to know the parameter displayed

WRF Model Initialization
  • Use “Research” version of LAPS (i.e. recent)
  • 5 km resolution
  • Runs external to AWIPS
  • “Basic” datasets from AWIPS via rsync to LDAD
  • Ingests 27 WSR-88D radars
  • Use Level II WSR-88D data from NSSL
  • RUC13 background
  • Hot start
